I met the boy in Vientiane, He is from southern of Laos, he talked to me about his story life. He came to the big city for to earn money for buy food to his family, he has five younger brothers and two younger sisters. His parents asked to leave school and go to the big city and find job, and he worked at factory five months but he did not get money two months because his workmate stole his money, but he had sent some money to his family only three months. And that reason he doesn’t want to work in Vientiane anymore. When i met his, he was crying on silent And I tried to asked him, finally he shared his story to me. It was breaking my heart because the quite same with my storied when I first came to work at big city. I help him, gave food and some money for his trip to go back to his hometown. He is super hero for his family.
Now the season married, Many young couple are getting, I am really jealous, you know when you get ages up 20 years old, that mean you are old to getting married, this is only people in the village. I am lately to get marry because I am return 30 years old and I am going be a grandma.
Two days ago, I went my village to joined the wedding with my family. I just want to share the religion in the village. In the village when they do wedding bride and groom never get dress nice as in other religions in Laos, just simple clothes. the bride 16 years old and the groom just return 18 years old. But had big ceremony. The video and pictures below.
Still season work on the field, at this moment planting rice. We are very good team work, this is the way how to planting the rice in the suburb.
At this season farmer work on the field some family sleep at the field for a week until they finish working, planting cassava, this is main job, they start to plant from February to April and the time harvest season is from November to December. The quite hard when they harvest. The pictures below
For 90 minutes to two hours or more each night, every single person on Earth dreams. But dreams don’t always tell a simple story, and the field of dream research becomes even more fascinating when people from different cultures and backgrounds report having similar dreams.
# I learn about other culture in their religion believe about dream, the dream will tell their future, so she talked her dream to me, But she was going to married in few days, her mother told her, before you are going to make new family, you have to take a dream first. The dream will tell you, that boy will be good for your future or not, then she went bed and slept. she was dream, the sky dark and is going to be rain soon. She woke up and she tried to hide that dream to her mother, She was thinking, tomorrow will be good dream because she didn’t want any change about her wedding is coming soon, next night she dream same last night and she asked her boyfriend the both had nightmare same two days past, and next night also same dream they both keep dream for seven days same dream, then they decided to ask the elder, the elder was so scared and told stop everything, no wedding, no relationship, cancel everything, they both failed, made they sad and the boy wanted to take her far away from the village but he could not because the girl did not to fallow him. finally they both breaking hearts.
In my opinion, I told her why you have be so serious about dream when you both love each other too much then will see the future and she told me, she has to do because her mother not allow. She is my cousin.
He is the man believe that the heaven give a child, He got 8 children now, He asked to wife, do not to control stop no more child. But in he family very poor, And old lady is his mother.
I always fall in love with kid’s developer themselves , I learn a lot about children at countryside how are difference from the children big city. they are very difference living. In countryside no need any baby sister when they return one year and half. I used to taking my nieces and nephews when I was from 3 years old until now, I still with kids. Never bored in this thing to do, my friend told me” you might not want my own children in the future” Said me ” why” “because you used to with kids all the time you will bored to have your own child” Replied friend. But other lady told ” would be easy when you have your child, you know how to take care of child” mmmmm….. I was confused
I am going to talk about my cousin: she got married when she was 13 but it was against her will. She wanted to study but her parents asked her to marry one of her cousins. Someone was very ill in the boy’s family and the families believed organizing a wedding would ease the spirits and make everything right. My cousin cried for three days and three nights, but she had no choice. Her parents told her if she didn’t go through with the wedding someone would die. This really scared her, so she decided to obey. She left school early, I was so sad when I saw her. The boy she married was my classmate in secondary school. One year later she came back to her parents’ home because my cousin and her husband didn’t love each other anymore. She lost her confidence from that time and she was unhappy, she looked always sad and shy, she didn’t talk to anyone and always wanted to be alone. A few months later, her mother asked me to help my cousin find work away from home so she came with me to Vientiane, the capital city of Laos. After living with me for four years, her life changed: she looked happier and made some friends. I was happy to see her life improving. Unfortunately, her mother passed away. This made her sad again, but two years later she started to feel better again. Her family married her younger sister to someone in my cousin’s family-in-law. Her sister was also very young when she got married but she sacrificed herself to try and solve the all problems. Unfortunately, her husband died when she was pregnant. Another very sad story.
It’s still happen in present .
